    Default Mark X fuel filter and injector cleaner

    As we all know the fuel quality of Pk, although i mostly use hi-octane ( whenever i visit Isb as here in Pesh no one sells hi-octane) but still it is not comparable with the ordinary fuel of Japan ( for which the engine of Mark x is designed, as this is JDM ) what do u think to put injector cleaner or change fuel filter, car is 41000 km driven acc to ODO meter but may be the previous owner reversed it so presume it to 70,000 km.

    no i am not facing any prob, every thing is perfect with the car, but my previous car, Merc C180 2004, once stopped working and the prob diagnosed was fuel pump malfunctioning, which was due to bad fuel, thats why i was concerned about this, i guess pouring injector cleaner would be easier and cheaper, and the car might give good millage, currently 6 km/l in city and 12-13 on motorway

    well i never used injector cleaners, nor do i beleive they work.... you can try it out... but i wudnt unless the car is giving any problem....

    and i thnk it was @airomerix who was saying 3 lacks for fuel filter of mark X... m not too sure mayb im mistaken.

    if you can get the OEM filter for 3500, then i see no issue in changing it... afterall ur car is driven 40k... and changing it will give u peace of mind.

    yep you are right. AIROMERIX mentioned this price of fuel filter i.e 3 lac.I guess ho own's one with a fuel injector problem.

    What problem is the car exactly giving you? Knocking? Bad fuel average?

    to me it seems like a bad avg, he is getting 6 intercity which is quite low for 300g... should be getting at least 7-8... but then again it dependz upon driving pattern.

    the car is not giving any prob, i m satisfied with the intercity fuel consumption as i know my driving pattern but as it gives 12 km/l on motorway, so it means that it is ok, if u guys recommend only then i would change fuel filter which wont cost more than Rs.4000, its not a big amount to ask u guys for advice but its changing is a lengthy process, for this the mechanic would remove back seat , there it is located some where above the the fuel tank

    Fuel filter is part of periodic mantainace for people driving on petrol or diesel. i remember changing fuel filter every 10,000 km's in the good old days i could afford petrol

    lolz. Guys i never mentioned fuel filter. My car HAD troubling fuel Pump and some major gasket problems i think. The total cost was 3-4 lacs. We came to know later that the car we brought was actually accidented but we still managed to sell it at a reasonable rate.

    i agree with u, for 2nd hand car, all oils and filters to b changed, i have changed mobil oil, filter, air filter, cabin( AC ) filter, plugs, coolant, just brake oil and fuel filter need to b replaced. Auto transmission oil in mark x is for life and need no replacing, also its power steering is electronic and has no oil.

    Dear Hash

    I think even if we use the alternate fuel, CNG in the case the fuel filter and pump still keep running and continue getting aged. Unless stopped manually with after market electrical switch.

    Get it changed ASAP your car has over 40,000Kms on the Odometer, an ideal fuel filter replacement should be made at 10,000-15,000Kms make sure you get the fuel filter replaced with only a OEM one. Don't go for other Taiwan/Local brands. Changing it is the tricky part, you have to make sure you don't break the plastic fittings and the valve seals. Don't give it to someone who doesn't know what he is doing. 12Km/L for a 3.0L V6 is pretty damn good though, mashAllah.

    P.S: Please make sure whoever replaces the filter, make sure he attaches the main rubber valve seal/rubber cap and the o-ring, you wouldn't want your fuel to leak all over the place would you?

    U should change the fuel filter immediately, considering quality of Pakistani fuel. It should be changed at 40k kms in any case.

    It costs around 4k and it a little hard to change, pump has to come out and filter is part of the whole pump assembly so skill is involved in assembling and disassembling.

    My Brother's 300 G is giving 8.5 in city after the service done, all filters, oils etc. when we got it, computer was showing 6.3 per liter, now it varies betweem 8-9.5 with final average of 8.5.

    ON motorway he got 12.7 which is remarkable IMO.

    No caps or rubber seals are involved in filter change of this car. Also, only Genuine is available because cars are few in number, chinese or others are not tempted to make and sell them here.
